Brooke
Brooke

My name is Brooke Leavitt. I come from a small town in Nevada where I grew up on a 27 acre ranch. Growing up on a ranch, I learned how to be a hard worker and to not be afraid to get messy. I have two older brothers and an older sister, and lots of animal family members! I'm a huge animal lover. I love to spend time with family and be the best Aunt that I can be to my two nieces. My number one hobby has always been dancing. I love all styles, but Hip Hop and Jazz are my favorites. I love to listen to music, go on hikes, watch movies, and cooking.

I've worked with children of all ages for 11 years, and I absolutely love it. I am currently pursuing a degree in HDFS to become a Occupational Therapist. I hope to become certified in special education as well. Working with children has been my passion since I was old enough to have a job! I couldn't imagine having any other type of career.

I enjoy being creative, whether it be in art, photography, cooking, etc. I grew up with an older sister and a younger brother and enjoy spending them and family friends.

Joy
Joy

My name is Joy, I'm a 22-year-old Reno native and passionate about life. I'm the second-to-youngest of a big family (5 brothers, 1 sister, 2 parents) and I love every crazy, competitive minute of it. I am going to school completing my general courses and deciding which degree to declare. I love to read. I'm a big fan of getting outdoors and staying active, particularly in the spring and summer months (I'm all about sunshine)! I enjoy yoga, the beach, my dog and I'm always in the mood to toss around a frisbee.

Francesca

Hi! My name is Francesca Milana. I am 20 years old and am currently a junior at the University of Nevada Reno with a major of Sociology and a minor of Spanish. I was born in Concord Massachusetts, spend the first two years of my life growing up in Rome, Italy, and then moved to Pleasanton CA when I was about 5 and have lived there since. I have two wonderful parents, an incredibly cute dog, and a little brother who is currently a freshman at UNR. I love working with kids and after I graduate I want to go back to California to get my teaching credential to be able to teach Elementary School. I have a lot of experience in child care, from babysitting to nannying to volunteering in different classrooms. I love spending time with my friends and family and fitness is something that is very important to me as well. I'm so excited to be apart of this team and can't wait to spend time with the kids!
